Icon: Simone Simon

Earlier this year, I saw the fantastic Cat People for the first time. This weekend, I initiated M into the slightly overly-sentimental and weepy world of Seventh Heaven (a film which largely works thanks to the performances of Simon and James Stewart). I find Simone Simon to be completely and utterly adorable and incredibly beautiful. I also like the fact that, despite a few attempts, she was unable to fit in with the Hollywood world and returned to France in the Forties; never marrying and living to the grand old age of 94.

    Wonderful pics, I've never seen this film – but I'll keep my eyes peeled! x

  2. She was perfectly cast for Cat People wasn't she. I'll have to keep an eye out for Seventh Heaven, James Stewart is fast turning into one of my favourite actors x

  3. He is seriously sexy in Seventh Heaven!!

    I’m the number one fan of the actress SIMONE SIMON, in Brazil. I’d say it’s the love that i never had…”Seventh Heaven”(1937), with Simone Simon and James Stewart , is the movie i would to paradine. The real name of Simone Simon was: Simone Thérèse Fernand Simon. She was buried in Bouches-du-Rhune,in France. I have on original photo of Simone Simon, what was in your Hollywood debuty “GIRL”S DORMITORY”(1936). It’s a rare photo, of the Fox Studios and, there is another photo collection, if you want to put on your page, please contacme.I have his complete filmography.
